Rugrats




It's a show about kids from the perspective of kids.

Or is it a show about adults from the perspective of kids?

That's the beauty of the show, you can enjoy it as an adult and a kid.

I loved the show as a kid, the crazy adventures of the kids always revolving around a lack of understanding of adults and what they mean when they say what they say, and I still love it as an adult!

The show revolves around the brave Tommy Pickle the cowardly Chuckie Finster and the grossed out twins Phil and Lil DeVille as they navigate through the conflicts sent to them by the adults and Tommy's evil cousin Angelica.

And that's all I have to say about the show cause I have no snide comments to make on the show.

Oh but I could add a funny theory I heard on the internet years ago!

The rugrats are all in Angelica's mind, Tommy was still born and that's why his dad spends all his time in the basement making kids toys, Chuckie died in the car accident with his mother which is why his dad is always on edge and the Phil and Lil were aborted and since Angelica didn't know what the sex was she imagined one of each gender.

  3. So many kids shows/films can be enjoyed by adults. Are we trying to relive childhood a little? or are the writers just good? A bit of both I think.

  5. I loved this show as a kid, but I'm afraid it won't age well beyond nostalgia.

  6. I was about to go apes***. I thought you were gonna diss on my Rugrats, and that's one show you can't dislike. I approve of this post, sir. And I'd actually dig a legit adult thriller based on Angelica's made up mind stuff. It could be so good.

  7. Man I loved this show when I was younger, I really did. I've read the alternate theory before and it kind of makes sense. Doesn't spoil the show for me in the slightest though.

  12. I truly enjoy the show, although perhaps it could be true that it's all in Angelica mind who knows.

  20. I'm always puzzled at the fact that even though Tommy is just a little baby, he looks older than grandpa.

    Also, "Thorg hungry, Thorg want eat!!!"

  21. I love this show, they're funny. But not the 'grown up rugrats'. They are too logical and create problems from the very beginning ;)
